Excel Expert Level 10
Description: Excel Expert Level 10
Versions: Recorded with Microsoft Excel 2010. Valid for 2007 to 2021.
Pre-Requisites: Excel Expert Level 9
Running Time: 1 Hour, 16 Minutes
Cost: $12.99

This course is for the expert user who has good experience with Microsoft Excel or has completed the five courses in our Beginner Series plus the previous eight Expert Level classes. This course covers several different Excel features.

We will begin by learning how to create custom views. This way, you can filter multiple sets of data and quickly switch between them using the custom views dropdown menu.


Next we'll learn about the SUBTOTAL function so that our calculations work properly with filtered or hidden data.


We'll learn how to group the data in our sheets together using Outlines.


Outlines are great for manually or automatically grouping and summarizing the data in your sheets, especially if you don't feel like building a pivot table.


Next we'll spend a lot of time learning about Data Validation. This allows you to control user input and force them to enter exactly what kind of data you want. You can create custom prompts and error messages for the data as it's being entered.


One excellent way to control user data entry is to use Dropdown Lists. These force the user to select a value from a list of options.


You'll learn many different kinds of advanced data validation. You'll see how to force a date to fall between two specific days (or within 30 days of today). You'll learn how to work with different functions inside of a validation rule to customize the criteria. For example, we'll create a special validation formula to make sure a Social Security Number is entered in the right format.


Finally, in one of my favorite examples, we'll create Cascading Dropdown Lists where we can have one list limit the choices in a second list. For example, pick a car make and then the list of models is filtered for that manufacturer. Then we'll go one step further... enter in the year, and we'll use the DGET function to pull up the price of the car based on those 3 criteria. This is really powerful stuff.


That is what is covered in Excel Expert Level 10. Plus, of course, there are lots of little tips and tricks thrown about here and there in the lessons (too many to list here). If you have any questions about whether or not this class is for you, please contact me.
